Other sites talk of 3, 4 and 6 cylinder engines - I doubt any news site really knows.
That's very rare a soft top getting cut into. I remember reading not a single person on this forum has ever heard of it happening.
Yeah I'd agree. It's not like a hard topped car isn't any easier to force your way into. Your more likely to get robbed for the keys.

Also loving the 4 pot comments as I'm sure when a focus rs or beedubs. Fiesta st pisses over most of us 4 pots will still be s**t

Unfortunately one person here has. It was only a rental with all the extra coverage insurance stuff taken out, but it has still put me off.

If they want into the car they will get into the car whether it's a soft top or hard top.

More speculation coming out on this possible Z4 replacement.

Found this info from various sites.....

Possible Hybrid engines
911 rival
Entry price £70,000

2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol – 190, 245 and 270hp.
3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six with over 300hp.

Z5M could use a 425hp 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine as seen in the current M3 and M4.
A choice of six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox is said to be available.
2007 Z4 3.0si Sport. Silver Grey, MM Tips, Piano Black trim and Black Leather now with speakers in the doors and 55,000 miles. Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymetric 2.

From... http://www.bmwblog.com/2016/05/10/rumor ... orsepower/

"a new report says the proposed Z4 coupe is gone. Toyota will sell only the hardtop version and BMW will stick with the roadster."

"BMW also plans a top-of-the-line Z4 M with 450-hp from an inline-six, whereas the ultimate Toyota Supra will be powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 from Japan."

"The next Z4 or Z5 Roadster will arrive in 2018."

I could have waited but made the decision to go with a new, last of the Z4 35is with as many toys as possible.
You don't stop playing when you get old - You get old when you stop playing !
So I bought a 35is with all the toys to play with. :thumbsup:

A car that's a mix of a e89 and a Supra, with a choice of soft top with BME i6 or Toyota v6. LGTM.
